In the second incident on Dec. 29, officers looked into a report of counterfeit cash at the Speedway gas station on 7th and Grandstaff Drive. Police arrested Ryan Bogatitus after he allegedly passed $1,200 in counterfeit $100 bills.

Then on Jan. 1 of this year, police learned of a counterfeit $100 bill used in St. Joe. Police say Dalton J. Smith ordered a Pizza from Marco’s Pizza in Leo, then had it delivered to an address in St. Joe when police say he used counterfeit money as payment.
